Who is your family photographer?
Hi, I am Edlyn.
I am a lifestyle family and newborn photographer based in Everett, Washington. Life moves by so fast but having photos to look back on has always given me some comfort. Every moment precious to me, I can recall with a photo. I take this feeling to every photo session with every family, helping them remember how wonderful it feels to love each other.
I moved here from a vibrant coastal part of India called Goa, where I lived to explore nature and hang out with my sisters and friends. We went to the beach, swam in flowing rivers and went on long walks soaking in what are now moments on my fingertips. One of my favorite memories as a child was looking through my parents' cupboards, trying to make up stories of the people they were. My mama had so many love letters sent to her from my father and his cupboard had old school gadgets and cameras.
My sisters and I have been playing with film, phone and digital cameras for as long as we could remember. I only started seeing the gift of photography as a passion when I volunteered as a photographer for Rain City Rock Camp in Seattle in 2013. With the help of the community, I was able to grow in confidence and skill simply by noticing the beauty in human interactions and relationships .
I now live in Everett where I am a family and newborn photographer working in the greater Seattle area. I work with families taking candid, natural photographs showcasing their natural connections with each other. I am always learning, growing, breathing and looking for ways to help you remember the tiny beautiful moments as we go along. I am always looking to have the most immersive, fun and joyful photo sessions with my people (that's you!). For you to feel like you had a great day after we meet - that's the love in this work. I am inclusive and work with all types of families - extended, child-free, pet families - so don't hesitate to reach out if you're in Everett, Seattle, Bothell, Mukilteo or beyond.

Edlyn was a great to work with and an excellent communicator from start to finish. We felt very comfortable while she was taking pictures for our special occasion, which she did on very short notice. She gave great ideas for poses and backgrounds that turned out amazing in the finished product. The edits were terrific and we received our pictures very quickly. Edlyn more than exceeded our expectations and we highly recommend. Not only do we consider her our photographer but now also a friend!

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY STYLE?
My photography style aims to capture candor and I give direction accordingly, so I can freeze you in those delicious in-between moments.
My editing style focuses a lot on true colors and light. I try to capture the mood as it was, as much as I can while editing.
We don’t feel very confident in front of the camera, is that ok?
I give lots of posing prompts and ideas so the photos have as much of a natural feel as possible. If you have no experience being photographed? GREAT! That makes you my ideal client and I would love to help you achieve the photo gallery of your dreams.
How soon should I book my session?
I recommend booking me 2 months ahead, if possible so that you get your preferred date and times for your sessions.
For any session you can book as far as a year in advance.
What’s the best time to have a session with a newborn?
Newborn sessions can happen as soon as a few days after birth or as far out as 3 months.
If you like that curled up newborn baby look, then let's book your session a few weeks after your baby is born.
I personally prefer when the baby is a little older (2-3 months). The parents are a little more comfortable with their routine and the baby is more expressive.
How soon will I get my photos back?
During busy season (August to December) you can get your photos back in 2-3 weeks or less. Our contract should specify this timeline.
If you require your photos sooner, I add a small rush fee and you can be moved to the front of the line.
It helps to book in advance to get your photos exactly when you need them.
